First Dates viewers couldn't get their heads around Lorraine from Limerick and her dessert-stealing

“This woman is just 100 per cent full-on.”

LAST NIGHT, THE nation was introduced to Lorraine from Co Limerick after the 51-year-old decided to bite the bullet and apply to First Dates Ireland.

And what an evening she had.


After kicking the night off on a shot with maitre d’ Mateo and barman Ethan, it was time for Lorraine to meet her date; off licence manager, Peter.

And sure look, during the course of the meal Lorraine called Peter ‘a fool’ for having been married twice, accidentally spluttered a glass of wine on herself and – as a self-confessed chatterbox – took a phone call in the middle of it all.

Seeing an opportunity, Peter excused himself from the table and made a phone call of his own in the gents.

While Lorraine sang her date’s praises down the phone, Peter looked and sounded like a deer in headlights as he attempted to describe his.

I don’t know. I don’t really know. This is not what I expected. I really don’t know what to do and what to say anymore.

And the kicker?

As Peter got to grips with what had taken place so far, Lorraine got to grips with Peter’s dessert.

Telling herself ‘she shouldn’t but she will’, Lorraine began demolishing the contents of Peter’s plate, as he – obviously oblivious – told his caller: “This woman is just 100 per cent full-on.”

And for viewers the length and breadth of Ireland, Lorraine’s roving hands were a step too far.

And the outcome? Will there be a second date?

Well, as an extremely good-natured Lorraine put it when confronted with that very question:

Are you stupid? No! But I love him to bits!
